Why Mary McDonald chose Seacrest

We fell in love with Seacrest because it offers a relaxed family atmosphere in close proximity to Rosemary, Seaside, and Destin. The beaches of 30A are unparallel & an easy trip from many of the South’s major cities. The airports in the area offer an additional mode of travel making it a destination that is easy to reach from anywhere! The pedestrian friendly neighborhood of Seacrest has a wonderful pool and shuttle service to the beach across the street. If you want a break from the white sand and emerald waters, there is plenty to do down the road in Panama City or in Destin. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we do!

This house was wonderful! The decor was beautiful but also comfortable. It was very spacious as we had plenty of room for our family. The beds allowed for a restful night's sleep. We enjoyed sitting on the front porch, enjoying the breeze as well as riding bikes throughout the community. The close proximity of restaurants, live music, pool, and trolley to the beach contributed to a great vacation!

Owner's Response: I am glad you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for the feed back on the reason for giving 4 stars. I understand that our door keypad system is not childproof and that this was your concern. I have found this system more convenient than a key system for many families but I know it doesn't fit everyone. I appreciate your business and recommendations. Hope to see you back next year!

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 4 from Atlanta and enjoyed our stay at The Summer Palace. There was more than enough room for us and the house had all the essentials. We didn't use the first floor bedroom and bathroom. Our boys loved the bunk room. The master bed was super comfy. The beach toys and bikes are definitely a bonus (especially if you are flying in from somewhere and can't bring that sort of stuff). The owner was easy to deal with and quite responsive. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your lovely home.

Summer Palace Delivers Again!

  • 5 of 5

Our families returned to Summer Palace for a second summer and had another spectacular stay! The home was clean and comfortable for 4 adults and 4 kids 10 and under, and we simply love the privacy of backing up to the nature trail and wooded area.

Great Location Off The Beaten Path

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Seacrest and the home was perfect for our party of 8. While the home tends to be on the back side of the Seacrest community and puts you a little further from the beach and the pool, we found it to be the perfect location for us. Backing up to a wooded area gave the screened back porch a tree house feel and was a great place for morning coffee.

We used the bikes our entire stay and rented a few more and found it easy to bike down the back path to Rosemary to join up with our friends staying in Rosemary. We walked and biked everywhere and never once used the Tram Service. The built in house stereo system was awesome. We enjoyed syncing and playing from our playlist and having control of which rooms or porches we could enjoy our music from was ideal.

We had a minor issue with the downstairs air unit and Mary Beth responded to our text almost immediately and had a service guy out within the hour to get everything running smoothly. We were never uncomfortable.

The only recommendation I would make would be to put a fan in the bunk room. I get that a ceiling fan might not work in that room with the bunks, but it does get a little stuffy in that room at night. It was the only critique I heard from anyone in the group.

We cooked in most nights and found everything we needed and we are foodies that enjoy cooking! A couple of days we got rained off the beach for a few hours and we all retreated to the house and never felt like we were cramped for space. The home is well designed and decorated. We will definitely return to this same property. Our stay at The Summer Palace made for a wonderful family vacation.
